The 6″ scale Little Samson
The Little Samson was a 5 ton steam tractor built by Savages of Kings Lynn to comply with the Heavy Motor Car Orders of 1905. The model is now available with Steam Traction World in 3″, 4″ and 6″ scale.
This is the CAST wheel version as in the photo. It will also have the Perch Bracket in between the boiler and the smokebox and not set right back like some or under the chimney like others. At this stage we are NOT offering the ‘spoked’ wheel version.
The model is 6′ 10″ long
The boiler barrels is 12″ in diameter
The back wheels are 29″ in diameter over the strakes
The model weighs about 850kg (17cwt).
